Públia Hortênsia de Castro High School in Vila Viçosa, Portugal by Cândido Chuva Gomes, Arquitectos

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Article source: Cândido Chuva Gomes, Arquitectos

The intervention area consisted of school grounds, vast and arid, where, between the existing buildings, three large pine trees grew. The central block had social and management functions; other two held classrooms and laboratories, another was still devoted to workshops and, finally, a sports pavilion. Functionally outdated, formally unattractive and structurally fragile, it denoted an aging prematurely equipment and an obvious inability to become warm and friendly to the school community.

SEA House in Esposende, Portugal by VA studio

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Article source: VA studio

The outer look of this patch of territory, still showing signs of rural traits, is somehow maintained by making slight corrections along the wall and by putting a new set of site access gates, that will fully preserve which is already standing and assure that it fits the surroundings. The projects’ concept had urban and landscape integration thoroughly into account – it was intended to give the structure a contemporary look, intentionally contrasting with the rustic granite walls.

Alves Martins High School in Viseu, Portugal by Cândido Chuva Gomes, Arquitectos

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Article source: Cândido Chuva Gomes, Arquitectos

The original building was designed by José Costa e Silva, and opened in April 1948. Two big classrooms volumes were positioned symmetrically, joined by a central body, which included an archway, where the covered recess area operated.

Through a gallery, and from the main hall, the two volumes (corresponding to the old male and female wings) linked themselves to another volume, corresponding to the gymnasium and the dining hall.

Conde House in Seixal, Portugal by SAMF Arquitectos

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: SAMF Arquitectos

This house, for a musician, is located in a low-density housing area, near a large pinewood, south of Lisbon. The site had an unusual topographical situation, where the construction of the front street had cut the landscape to form a small “cliff” 3/4m high. The house was thought as a substitution of this cliff, maintaining the original situation overlooking the street, over a high sustaining wall. A patio was excavated as the entrance.

Bar “La Bohème Entre Amis” in Porto, Portugal by AVA Architects

Friday, March 9th, 2012

Article source: Atelier Veloso Architects

The Bar “La Bohème” (entre amis) is located in the “Galeria de Paris” street, amidst the downtown area of Porto. The redesign sought to implement and structuralize the space, creating its own identity. The solution was formalized through the texture and the colour of the wood, which defines the space and provides depth to the structure’s design. This structure, which was placed along the corridors and namely at the walls and ceiling, allows to subvert the whole appearance of the space, appealing to its visitors sense of discovery.

Quinta Do Vallado Winery in Peso da Régua, Portugal by Francisco Vieira de Campos

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: Francisco Vieira de Campos

In a landscape as unique and astonishing as Douro, any intervention must be very precise. That’s why the first challenge was to underline the distinctive identity of the project while carefully respecting the landscape. Each gesture had to be incisive, adapting itself to the given programme while conquering an expressiveness that could value both the built complex and the surrounding landscape. The expansion project for Quinta do Vallado included two areas of intervention – production and leisure – and a supplemental challenge: to maintain and to integrate the per-existing buildings in a new complex with a clearly contemporary vocabulary. The unification of all these purposes needed great technical precision and resulted in great simplicity, both in the use of material and in the creation of forms. This assured minimal impact to the landscape but the same economy of means was used to create very seductive spaces. Seduction of the visitor was always part of the game.

HDM House in Lisbon, Portugal by Sara Antunes Mário Ferreira Arquitectos (designed using AutoCAD and Revit)

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: Sara Antunes Mário Ferreira Arquitectos

This house is located in a privileged area of Lisbon, at the southern end of a row of houses. This neighbourhood, built in the 1950’s by the state as social housing, in a “nationalistic” style, has a homogenous character, with the repetition of a type with slight variations, and cohesive public space, which promotes a strong sense of community that, is so hard to find in the more fragmented contemporary city.

School of Music of the Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon, Portugal by João Luís Carrilho da Graça, architect

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Article source: João Luís Carrilho da Graça, architect

When I first started working on this project I happened to be visiting Eero Saarinen’s School of Music in Ann Harbor. Even though the building is interesting, it struck me as odd that no music could be heard in the passageways, not even in the common spaces. At about the same time I watched a documentary about the Music Conservatory in Santiago de Cuba, it was an old colonial house filled with people, joy and music. For this project, I wanted to push to the limits the possibility of acoustic excellence – and also the seclusion and soundproofing of every space, as well as convey the conviviality and extroversion particular to certain musical practices.
